Project Title: Oral History of Emotions in the Quebec Student Movement.

Through a combination of autoethnography, political activist ethnography and in-depth video interviews, my PhD thesis seeks to explore and document an oral history of emotions in student strikes in Quebec since 2005. Can emotions and relationships, the substances that fuel many social movement participants be historically preserved, and how? What can student activists in the present learn from the emotional and relational habitus of the past? With the help of COHDS I hope to continue exploring the possibility of video to analyze emotions, and how they can shed some light on the Quebec student movement -and our (education) system- yesterday and today. I am also excited to integrate my new knowledge of the Stories Matter software into my process.
